Sketch Saturday #56

Morning all!
Hope you are enjoying your weekend. Here's my card for this weeks Sketch Saturday Challenge. Another fabulous sketch provided by Jo and this week we are sponsored by Heidi from Simon Says Stamps. (there is a voucher up for grabs...hop on over to the SS blog to see how much it's for) My fellow DT have obviously enjoyed this sketch as they have come up with some fabulous cards...you are the best ladies!! We welcome Leonie into the fold for a couple of weeks as our GDT. She has made a stunning card this week. Already looking forward to her card for next week.
For this card I used Gingham paper and foiled patterned Vellum (K&Co) which was in my DT pack from The Craft Palace. I added the wine card stock and ran one panel through my Cuttlebug to emboss. I also added some gold Mirri board and used the Fiskars Apron lace border punch (I was impressed at how easily it cut through Mirri board) and also made the corner flourishes from a Cuttlebug die. The image is my own 'Grandpa and Sarah' digi stamp. I coloured the flesh tones with my Copics, the clothing with koi water colours and for the book I used Twinkling H2O's giving a lovely sheen.I added some glossy accents to Grandpa's glasses and two tiny drops of liquid pearls for Sarah's buttons. I finished off the card with a ribbon bow and self adhesive pearls from my own stash.
Hope you are able to join us with this weeks sketch.
Ciao for now!
